This is a parenting program produced by the Australian Childhood Foundation which is underpinned by a philosophy of promoting and supporting respectful, caring and nurturing relationships between parents and their children. Parents and carers are encouraged to become more reflective and mindful in their parenting approach.

Are you looking to transform your relationship into the loving relationship you both want? Research by The Gottman Institute has shown that the quality of a couples’ friendship and feeling of connection are fundamental in being able to successfully manage the inevitable challenges that will arise in their lives together.

Building and nurturing families can seem a daunting task, but it’s not mission impossible. This six-week course is designed for families with children of all ages. Inclusion is the key, and any adult involved in the parenting process is invited to come with children over 10 years of age. Parents and children will learn about cooperation, relating respectfully and solving problems.

This course acknowledges that change is a part of life, and with change come losses. We are continuously faced with separation, endings, loss of identity and other major changes. Work variations, retirement, illness and more serious upheavals such as separation and death are all accompanied by a degree of loss. This is not a therapy group, but will give space for participants to reflect on their own life's journey with change and loss, with the aid of some signposts for making positive adjustments in this process.

The Circle of Security Parenting Workshop is an 8 week relationship based program for parents with children aged from 0-4 years of age. The program is designed to enhance attachment security between parents and children and provides a more natural and gentle approach to parenting that focuses on the needs of the child and the reason behind their behaviour rather than disciplining or ignoring them.

Healthy relationships, whether at work or at home, are created by individuals who communicate clearly and effectively. As acclaimed writer and researcher Hugh MacKay said: “It’s not what our message does to the listener, but what the listener does with our message that determines our success as communicators.” This course covers all areas of communication including attitudes, listening, and speaking skills, as well as conflict resolution.
